One a Day......week 4


I now have 28 African Flower hexagons, I'm sewing them as I go, it doesn't look a lot different from last week, I'm loving how it's coming together though.


I've just finished the Swishy Scarf from the Cute & Easy Crochet book, I used Rooster Almerino DK and this will go to my sister as part of her Christmas present (she doesn't look at my blog so it will be a surprise). It feels lovely and soft to the touch,I hope she'll like it.


Thanks for looking and don't forget to enter my give-away HERE.

Hi Deb, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving the sweet comment. That's what brought me here. Wow just learning to crochet and taking on such a big project. It's beautiful. Love the scarf too. I've crocheted for years and only once took on a big project. A bed spread in fillet crochet...I never finished it but I used what I completed as a window valance. Thanks for joining my blog I appreciate the support. Be well Carole

The blanket is looking great but I LOVE the scarf! I have a pattern picked out that I like at Ravelry. Now I just need to figure out colors and buy the yarn...

Faith said...

I love the soft colours of your blanket, it is so pretty. The scarf looks great too, what a lovely pattern.

Ira said...

I told you before Deb, but your blanket is going to be something really really special. Those coloured flowers in the centre stand out so fabulously against the white, also adore your scarf, how did you make this?? It's awesome! Love those frills! Ira x

That is a beautiful scarf you make for your sister, you are lucky that your sister doesn't come "here", my sister "stalk" me all the time, she once told me that I should not show the layout with her photo without her permission, LOL!

I just love your african flowers. I've tried these but I wonder if I went too garish with the colours. I'm going to have another go with softer tones.

Your blanket is coming along so nicely! And the scarf is gorgeous!! Funnily enough, I've been thinking about that scarf lately as I'm hoping to crochet one or two for Christmas presents, but I can't find the book anywhere, grrrr! *Fingers crossed* it'll turn up soon though and I didn't lose it on holiday, lol!

Leah said...

Your African flowers look amazing! They are just what I needed to see, as I've just bought wool to start one myself but was feeling a little unsure. Now I am completely motivated! Thank you.

Your african flowers look gorgeous! The scarf is fab - I recently made myself a ruffled scarf in that yarn in the hot pink colourway and it's so soft.. unfortunately it's 25C at the moment, so much for Autumn!

I love your flower hexagons, the colours are so soft but striking. I will definitly take inspiration from the blanket and try one of my own when I finish this One a Day. The scarf is beautiful, it would make an ideal christmas present. I must get that book.

Gorgeous soft colours on the blanket, it's going to be so pretty when it's done. And the scarf is gorgeous, so soft and squishy and feminine.
